Three years, says attorney Eric Weinberg, is long enough to wait. He’s filed suit against the Food and Drug Administration because his request for record filed by the pharmaceutical company Merck is still pending. Weinberg is representing several hundred people in a class action against the drug company. The director of the FDA’s Freedom of Information Office responds simply, “We’re operating in a backlog situation.” (4/26/07)
